12/07/2011 – PC PRO is one of the premier sites for researching electronics online, especially storage and NAS. Dave Mitchell's latest review of the N5200XXX shows that this product has great strengths and is one of the best 5-bay NAS on the market in addition to being the cheapest.
The speed is impressive: “The N5200XXX delivered good results in our tests…drag-and-drop copies of a 2.52GB video clip returned read and write speeds of 89MB/sec and 86MB/sec.”
The speed is complemented with a strong feature set and flexibility: “The appliance can be upgraded with a range of freely available modules…The download station module retrieves remote files via BitTorrent, HTTP, FTP or eMule, and home users will like the Piczza! module. This provides a remote web photo server for organising galleries, sharing pictures and adding Google Maps links to show where they were taken.”
The N5200XXX is a great value: “…if you want the cheapest five-bay NAS appliance currently available then this Thecus is your best bet.”
